Jules de Balincourt was born in Paris in 1972 and moved to the United States with his family in the early 1980s. After studying at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, where he developed an interest in the art of ceramics, which he practised for some time, he settled in New York, completing a master's degree at the city's Hunter College in 2005. He lives and works in Brooklyn, and is one of its art scene's main driving forces. Dubbed "Starr Space," his Starr Street studio in the Bushwick district serves as a community centre, performance and concert space, as well as an art gallery for neighbourhood artists. LINK julesdebalincourt
